Heart Wreath

Valentine's Day is in about a month, so rather than wait until February to decorate the house with hearts we're doing it this week.... beginning with a heart wreath....

Heart Wreath

My daughter and I made the wreath using two wire hangers, scrapbook paper and a glue gun.  To start, I untwisted the hangers and bent them so each hanger formed one side of a heart....

... then I twisted and knotted both ends/points together (use your super human strength!).  Now the heart was connected and one piece...

We cut out several different sized hearts.... we made some really wide, some tall and narrow and some teeny tiny... there was a huge variation.  For a little extra help, heart cookie cutters are a great stencil to get an even shaped heart.  (I chose not to use the fold-the-paper-in-half-method because I didn't want a crease in the hearts.)

Once the hearts were cut, we used a glue gun to attach the hearts on the wire...

After the wire was covered in hearts, we then glued smaller sized hearts on top and turned them all different ways for variety....

After all that gluing, our heart wreath eventually was full of pink, white, red and gold colors and ready to be hung.  It's now hanging by twine over the mirror in the dining room.

So festive.... I'm feeling the need to celebrate with a Valentine's Day party (for the kids, of course)...
